Dr. Diana Six, an IoE fellow, University of Montana Professor of Forest Entomology/Pathology, and Chair of the UM Department of Ecosystems & Conservation Sciences, was just funded to do work by the National Park Service in Devil's Tower National Monument, Mount Rushmore National Memorial, and Wind Cave National Park. Her work with the NPS will focus on ponderosa pine adaptation to climate change. She has also been funded by the Climate Science Center (part of the USGS) to do similar work on whitepark pine.
